I was given this piece of dark brown faux fur. It is about a third of a yard.
What should I make with this?
I had some fun at the Depot again when I was in Indiana visiting family. I had some fun in the sewing notions and the clothing department.
New fabric added to the stash: rayon polka dot stretch denim.
Leave a comment with your guess as to what I will be using this denim for!
I finally got around to making a pair of culottes from this vintage Hollywood pattern. I have been wanting to do this all summer, and it at least made it as a summer project.
Not all sewing tasks are grand and glorious. Some are rather tedious, (aka. using the seam ripper), and others are just plain annoyingly quick to accomplish. It takes more time to get stuff out than to complete the project.
I have had two quick mending type projects lately that seem to fall under this category of mundane, nonexciting projects. One being the need to sew on a button that I popped off a skirt. But these type of tasks need to be done all the same to avoid large to-do piles and mending baskets.
I have the first pattern draft of this skirt sketch of mine done. I am ready to do my first complete test of the pattern. I still have a lot to do before the pattern is ready to sell. I can't help but look through my other sketches and dream about what I want to work on next both in pattern drafting and projects.
So you got to hear last week about my 1860's dress project...
You may or may not remember this project. (Truth be told, I really don't blame you if you forgot, but to refresh your memory, you can read more about this project: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5.)
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
